The Truth About Being in A Blogger In Your Early 20s

fashion blogger style

To many we're iPhone obsessed, self obsessed, and out all night, but the reality of being in your early twenties is tough. Reality can be tough to portray online but here is some.

We're thrusted out of University into the working world, and I for one feel like I'm constantly chasing my worth. With rent, bills, and food to pay for, let's not even mention my University debt, I'm working every weekday and most weekends. It's easy to assume from Instagram that we are all living the luxe life one hundred percent of the time, but really it's all hard graft. You may mock and not take us bloggers seriously as we take our OOTD shots on street corners, but getting up to shoot, spending hours on editing and planning, responding to emails, pitching ideas, posting daily, scheduling ahead of the game, engaging with accounts, and even just organising yourself around your day job is too much for most. We work on our passions in the hope of one day living out that passion but as social media evolves into a contest of who looks best, who has the most expensive things, what's left here? Our wasted effort? Time? Or just a desire to chase our dreams?

This website is my own. It stands for me and me only, and I'm here to tell you that its not all perfection, lip fillers and good lighting, its hard work, overthinking everything and creative overload. So why do I partake in this? Because its what I love, it drives me. The creativity of curating your own story, and sharing on a mass scale has opened up many opportunities that I am so grateful for.

So please have some respect for the overtime that we are putting in each week on doing what we love, and doing it for ourselves. I'm not here to get as many ads as I can, I'm here to enjoy what I'm doing and share through my little space on the Internet.

Reality can be written, you just have to be willing to write it.

To those who have always shown nothing but support and continue to tune in with my accounts, you're all darlings & thank you so much.
